No goals, but definitely other talking points.
Song was lucky not to see red, but so is Joey Barton. How is that only a yellow card?! Otherwise, our defense actually did look solid, especially Szczesny and Vermaelen, but our attack was too blunt. Guess Wenger isn't wrong by making attacking purchases...
... that was a mistake.
He can't just yet. He's still sorting out Visa issues in Japan right now. He'll be available after the first leg against Udinese.
... didn't know that. :) That's a shame that it takes so long, after they (FA or whoever) already had all summer to get him that work-permit...but just gave it to him this week.
is song dismissed for the next match?
Nope, didn't get any card at all. The ref didn't see it. VERY lucky he didn't too, because it was a plain and simple use-his-calf-as-a-stepping-sto ne stomp. Wouldn't be surprised if he were retroactively punished though.
gervinho deserved a red just for his hairstyle but barton should have gone too.
haha.. Lets be honest peter walton only sent gervinho off as a punishment for his ridiculous hair.
This is the beginning of many mistakes referees will make. Our defense was strong today, man, if only Djourou made a better pass, we would of scored lol
The Arsenal defense looked good, but then again Newcastle have no one up front that could really cause them problems. Also, someone who can play those defense shattering passes that Fabregas can do is needed.
song will still get banned for 3 matches after prem league review the incident.
Both teams are terrible. This game was mind numbingly boring to watch. Arsenal definitely won't crack the top 4, maybe not even the top 6, and Newcastle may be in a relegation battle if they don't get a striker and another playmaking midfielder.
the most boring game on Saturday, at least "The Barton's Show" light everything up in the end :)
If arsenal continues to perform like that, they will finish 5 place or lower.
It was a boring match. Joey should have been sent off not Gerhinvo.
i could say the same about chelseas performance today... joey def shoulda seen red though i dnt know how they still let this guy play football
What is it with you and Chelsea? Terrified? You should be. Torres was fantastic and will improve. De Gea was useless and no forseeable improvement.
i'm a manchester united fan.. why wouldnt i hate chelsea.. de gea has played terrible but i'm sure he'll turn it around.. it doenst matter how much his performances improve you guys paid 50mil for his goals so far hes got u 1... money well spent right?
Anyone knows were Eboue is?
